NSF to develop foundations of data science

The National Science Foundation has awarded $17.7 million to 12 research projects with the aim of developing the foundations of data science.

The projects, the first awarded under the agency’s Transdisciplinary Research in Principles of Data Science (Tripods) program, will bring together the statistics, mathematics and theoretical computer scientists in long-term research projects, the NSF said on 24 August.

The projects aim to support fundamental research in data-driven science and engineering; shape a cohesive, federated, national-scale approach to research data infrastructure; and develop a 21st century data-capable workforce.
